We still don't know enough about how to actually run a network
to have luminaries.  The occasional bright candle, maybe.  Right
now, most of the suits are still trying to figure out why the
non-suits think the suits "Just Dont Get It" (the PHB syndrome).

Unfortunately, the Adams brothers (Scott and Douglas) seem to
have quite a bit of relevance (or more importantly - a large
percentage of the people working in *your* trenches *think* they
have relevance).

And both authors share the trait that they tend to be much more
an entertaining read than anything labeled a 'tome' ;)


P.S. Yes, I know about the incorrect genealogical term 2 paragraphs
back. ;)
